I was inspired to listen to this book because I recently finished a fictional book in which the Cuban Missile Crisis played a key role. I hoped to gain some insight into the news of the day, the feel of the crisis, and how the public reacted. I guess this was the wrong book for me, because it's a moment-to-moment reaccount of recorded conversations in the Oval Office. Interesting for a while, but hours of this is hard to listen to.
The narration was clear but rather cold and monotonous. Hour after hour he speaks in the same tone.
I also figured this would be fairly intriguing and it was just dry and dull. A few minor dust-ups in the diaglogue, no information at all about the public reaction to the crisis. I suppose that for JFK and other historical scholars it might be interesting, but just barely.

it is truly impossible to describe the shock when somebody mispronounces the names that are essential to the story. The mispronunciation of Greenwich is perhaps a high-crime. How does Bob Dunsworth have a job doing this? Made this professional historian cringe. Frequently.
